Ted Cercena offers 8-week basic computer lessons for seniors who would like to learn beginning computer skills, especially to go on the internet or send e-mails. The center’s computer lab has Microsoft 10 laptops. Classes are small and are held once a week on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, depending on the demand. The cost is $18 for the course.
If you are interested in taking the course, there is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board outside the center office.

Watch for new trips for 2019. We will be posting them in the newsletter, in this column, and on the bulletin board outside the center office. We do not schedule trips during the winter months because the weather is unpredictable. If a travel company cancels, you will receive a refund or the trip will be rescheduled. If you cancel, you do not receive a refund, you do not receive a refund because restaurants, theaters, etc. have been prepaid.
